With my mind failing more and more, my meal preps are pretty simple and sometimes I’ll plan ahead for a whole month.
- Make a batch of noodles, then freeze them in small baggies for two servings (note: I eat a heck of a lot, so probably 4 servings) to feed me and the wife.
- I’ve started buying pre-frozen veggies, and freezing up some fresh veggies.
- Cube and fry chicken and beef, freeze them and use what I need throughout the month.
- Throw away anything that’s been in the freezer too long. Yick, yuckie, spew.
If I could, I’d make roux and have that for the sauces I make, but I can’t find clarified butter, so I just stick with Great Value brand butter as it seems to last the longest and it’s really not that bad for the cost. (I have too many problems trying to make pasta by hand, so I always have a trove of store bought pasta on hand. Macaroni, penne, linguini, angelhair, and bowties.
Plus, I cut up my hamburger into 1/2 pounds and freeze them that way, so I can just grab what I need.
O_o, now I think about it, there’s a butload I do to prep throughout the week/month…I’ll have to see if my addled brain will let me write it all down.
